First Lessons

A young enthusiast's guide to golf

With a foreword by Nick Faldo, The Young Golfer is the latest in a series of grassroots instruction books from specialist publisher Dorling Kindersley.

It is packed with practical tips and advice designed to give a junior player a thorough understanding of the game, along with valuable first lessons that will set every young golfer on the way to achieving a sound and solid swing - starting with the importance of a good grip and set-up position.

This short extract highlights the quality of the photography and the simplicity of the instruction that could make this the ideal gift for any aspiring Tiger - or Tigress!

A step-by-step guide to making a perfect golf grip

As your only point of contact with the club, a good grip is vital for good golf, and you should spend some time practicing the way in which you join your hands together. This step-by-step guide will help you. The position of your hands on the club determines how well you are able to hinge your wrists to make an effective swing - so it's vital to get it right. Your grip also affects the position of the clubface as it makes contact with the ball - most shots that curve to the right or left are the result of a bad grip.
